Activity Tips

If you’re planning to bring your bicycles with you, you’ll want to have either mountain bikes or hybrid bikes for the Carriage Roads. Their gravel surfaces are too soft for road bikes with narrow tires.

If you visit Acadia in the Summer months and plan to drive your vehicle to different trail heads, plan to get there early in the mornings as parking lots tend to fill by late morning. Or you can always utilize the Island Explorer instead.

Acadia offers some of the best opportunities to try kayaking for the first time. Either on your own or in a group with a guide. If you’re going to try it just once, why not try it in one of America’s most scenic National Parks. It will surely be an experience you never forget.
